Illamasqua inspired Valentine's Day look!

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to try the look from the Illamasqua Throb collection.  I mentioned it here.

Of course you know that I omitted the white pancake makeup and made it more wearable.  Application was soft.  Cute.  Soft cut crease.  Pink cheeks.  Here it is:

Labour Day Weekend/ Summer's End LOTD

The summer went by super fast!! I cyah believe that’s it’s almost over ! 🙁

I went to a fabulous rooftop barbeque this weekend and decided to end the summer as I began….with Firecracker eyeshadow, one of the gems from the On The Beach collection from M.A.C.  I also made use of my new favourite product, SuperSlick Liquid Eye Liner in On the Hunt.  Here’s how it came out:

It's all in the eyes…..

It’s no secret that I love eye makeup.  So many colours, combinations and possibilities!

I love using eyeliner.  When paired with mascara, you have an instant look that works for all occasions.  I have used all types of liner – pencil, gel, liquid, cake and powder, although right now my pencil/gel combination rules.

For their late summer/early fall collection, Fabulous Felines, M.A.C. introduced a new product called SuperSlick Liquid Eye Liner in a stunning 9 colours.  These are touted as being long-lasting, super shiny, and water resistant.

As per the M.A.C. website:

A liquid liner so slick it almost describes itself. Water-based, water resistant, quick and precise to apply. Dries in 15 seconds to provide a sleek, longwearing, wet-look, no-smudge line. The superior no-fuss, no-wobble application lies in the “magic tip” of the easy-to-control dip-stick applicator.

The Packaging

Years ago, M.A.C. sold a liquid liner that came with a felt-tip, short wand applicator, with a thinner consistancy liquid. I think these were discontinued.  The updated liquid liner comes in a long, sleek, pencil thin barrel container with a longer felt- tipped brush and wand applicator.

SuperSlick Liquid Eye Liner

The container reflects the colour of the liquid inside.  The wand screws in and out of the container containing the liquid.  I prefer this longer handle as I think its easier to control.  The applicator comes to a fine point and allows you to get really close to the base of the lashes for the thinnest line.  You could also use the wand on its side for a thicker line.

Super fine sponge-tipped. dip-stick applicator

I really like the packaging, I think it’s sleek.

LOTD: A little wasabi please…..

Decided to play around with my new Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Color pigment that I received from the wonderful David Klasfeld.  Everyone talks about OCC’s liptars but y’all should not sleep on their loose pigments!!! They have a lot of unique shimmers that are finely milled, smooth and highly pigmented and they have quite a few matte pigments.  The colour of the day is Wasabi – a midtone yellow-green with gold shimmer.  This looks just like wasabi, just like it!
